While Tosh is just getting back from a vacation in Ontario with her kids, she feels she could pull off a trip by herself to a secluded island.

…An island by yourself isn’t as romantic/fun as it sounds.

I don’t think it’s as romantic as the movies or even your ideas portray it to be — a 67 year old woman has been living by herself on Sable Island, off the coast of Nova Scotia, by herself — for 40 years!

Now, she’s not living there solely to be “off the grid” — she a citizen scientist who studies the island’s ecology — and how the 40+ wild horses have adapted to it’s barren landscape, after being brought over by settlers in the 18th century for help with agricultural work.

Where she doesn’t have human companionship on the island — she does have 400 horses, 300,000 seals and over 400 species of birds to keep her company!

And a beach ball for a best friend.
